Flood alert lifted for Liberec and Ústí nad Labem regions

28-08-2010

The Czech Hydrometeorological Institute has lifted its flood alerts for the regions of Liberec and Ústí nad Labem in north Bohemia. The institute issued the warning on Friday fearing heavy rain could result in local rivers reaching the first or second level flood danger. Level three indicates danger or extreme danger of flooding. Now, only showers are predicted for the areas with rivers only rising because of previous heavy rain. Both regions are still recovering from devastating flash floods just three weeks ago which caused around 6.0 billion crowns in damage and claimed at least five lives.
